Chicken Tikka – Serves 4

Tikka: chunks of meat, fish or vegetables marinated in spices and  yoghurt, then skewered and cooked in a tandoor, under a grill or on a barbecue. Tikka dishes are often served as a starter or as part of a mixed grill.

For a quick easy meal use diced cubed chicken.

This particular dish is recommended to be left to marinate for at least half an hour in the fridge (covered) before cooking.

1st stage
1.Prick the chicken breasts (both sides) in several places with the tines of a fork and make few diagonal slashes (on one side) in each breast.
2. Put the chicken in a bowl.
3. Add the required amount of Mr Huda’s Tikka Marinade Paste, oil, yoghurt and some coriander.
4. Mix well in to the chicken (use disposable glove when mixing, as to prevent staining your hand).
5. Leave to marinate in the fridge.

2nd Stage:
1.Cook as you prefer (grill or pan fry) until the chicken is cooked turning and basting with any excess marinade (try not to over cook).
2.Once cooked garnish with fresh  salad, lemon wedges, coriander and serve immediately with mint raitha sauce.
